Turfing the polytunnel at Howard Nurseries

Posted by Tom Hoblyn on 03 Apr 2009 at 05:34 PM

Much to the delight of the staff, we spent this morning turfing 50 square metres of the Chelsea-dedicated polytunnel at Howard Nurseries. In actual fact it's wildflower turf from Coronet Turf Ltd that we need to push on a bit in time for Chelsea. I am hoping for a good show of ragged robin that is evidently abundant in the turf. We rolled out a sheet of black plastic and raked out about 10mm of compost for the turf to root into. However, I'm a little concerned about how we are going to get it to Chelsea as we will not be able to roll it back up again - but I'm sure we'll think of something.
